on npr. ladies are in washington this evening. were you offended by the "new york times" highlighting the word christian in its headline? mary katharine. >> yeah. look. i think it's a problem. first of all i'm a political animal but i try very hard in these instances not to immediately jump on a hobby horse and figure out where i can ride it immediately in the aftermath of a strategy like this. i think a lot of other people would do good to do that as well. the "new york times" many liberal activists, certainly desperately want an analog to extremist islam pat themselves on the back for being equal and making this equivalence. you know what? a lot of times the term use in order guy and if you read his writings it's certainly not mainstream fundamentalism. he talks about payingism as with many crazy people it goes down a rabbit hole. they have been referring to him as christian fundamentalists referring to the dug garrs in arkansas christian fundamentalists. is it having lots of children that makes a crazy threat or killing lots of children? it's insane. >> we can find alyssia no evide

are wondering where the government can cut costs. the npr came up with one idea. >> each day the u.s. treasury mints nearly $2 million in coins. coins that mostly go directly into storage. abc's john karl checked it out. >> reporter: we took a journey to the u.s. mint in philadelphia where they seem to have more doors than "get smart." for a lesson in how the government is losing money by making money. it sounds a little bit like las vegas around here except the coins never stop coming. this is the presidential dollar coin. congress ordered the mint to make millions of them to honor every dead president. but nobody seems to want them. rutherford b. hayes. hot off the press, literally, these coins are still warm. made of manganese brass, they cost nearly 32 cents a pop to make. the mint makes nearly 2 million of them every day. do the math. about $600,000 a day to make them. and each one of these bags, 140,000 coins, $140,000, more than 2,000 pounds. because almost nobody uses these things, most go directly into storage. we found a bunch of them 100 miles down the road in a vault. here at the f
